High School Completion Programs

Students 16 years of age or older who have not completed their high school education may be eligible to earn a diploma through Kirkwood’s High School Completion program. More than 50 independent study, online and structured courses are offered at Kirkwood learning centers located in the seven-county service area.

Computers are available to provide students with course work, enrichment activities and vocational experience. Students are also encouraged to take interest and career assessment inventories, tour program facilities on the main campus, and explore other career and academic resources as part of their high school experience.

Preparation and testing for the General Educational Development (GED) diploma are also available at Kirkwood learning centers. Students may study independently, work with a teacher or tutor, use GED instructional software, and view instructional videos to learn or review GED competencies.
